Parade: 1.00pm – 2.30pm

Santa’s Elves have been working hard on new floats to make the 85th annual Farmers Santa Parade the best yet! A Beginning of Times Dinosaur float and Nutcracker float, two new fantasy floats, will take Auckland families by storm as they marched proudly alongside Parade favourites on Sunday 2nd December.
Joining the new Dinosaur and Nutcracker floats will be some exciting old and new friends including the Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Thomas the Tank Inflatables and the big man himself – Santa.


Once the Parade is over, the fun continues through the afternoon with Santa’s Party at Aotea Square from 2:30pm. Headling this year’s Santa’s Party is none other than Paw Patrol.
